I loved making hoop wreaths for Christmas last year HERE. Now that it is starting to warm up I’m thinking spring and wedding decor. These easy DIY paper hoop wreaths look so cute hanging on a wall or hanging from a banister or railings. I was inspired by West elms wall decor. And it was just a trip to the craft store to make this cute backdrop happen.
I tried a few different ways to try to adhere the paper to the embroidery hoops. It was hard at first trying to put the paper into the frames but i figured out the best way to do it. I used two different kinds of paper and each one worked differently.
If you are using thin craft paper or thin wrapping paper then you can do the over lap way that looks more like cloth.
The embroidery hoop comes in two pieces. loved this pack from Amazon, it has lots of sizes for less than the craft store. Take them apart and use the inside piece (the one without the tightening screws) use that hoop and trace on the outside of the hoop onto the 12×12 piece of paper. Cut the paper a bit on the outside of the trace line.
use that trace line to put glue on. I tried hot glue but it didn’t get the paper movable enough.
slowly work the glue edge around the hoop wreath so that it sticks. Before it dries put the top piece on to seal it into the middle of the frame.
if you are using card stock you wont be able to tuck it into the hoop wreath. After tracing the hoop cut as close to the trace line as possible then when gluing, put the glue on the hoop and then place it on top of the trace line. (Elmer’s glue worked best) It will look just as cute if you take your time cutting.
The charm of this wall is adding in textures. use lace and material to keep the look soft and wedding like. The versatility of this backdrop is you can use any color of paper , boy, girl, whimsy, modern, to create the feeling your want to create. Add floral pieces ribbons or what ever makes your party theme pop. I loved adding brass hoops with greenery. What an inexpensive backdrop for parties, weddings, showers or just your teens room. Happy creating.
